Take your storytelling to the next level by participating in a three-day summer conference that dives into the role writing can play in social, aesthetic and personal change. Gemini Ink’s second annual Writers Conference presents Writing for Change, July 21-23 at the historic downtown El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel.
This literary immersion features workshops with master writers, panels, round tables, small press fairs, readings and after parties. This year’s keynote speaker is Pablo Miguel Martínez, with featured talks by experts Tom Payton and Clay Smith. Showcased authors are Helena María Viramontes, Brian Turner, Patricia Spears Jones and Octavio Quintanilla, with special guest Marilyn R. Atlas, acclaimed talent/literary manager and producer.
A welcome reception kicks off the conference on Friday, July 21, and continues with nonfiction/fiction/poetry workshops and panels on July 22 and 23. The conference closes on July 23 with a closing reception and a chance to mingle with writers and conference attendees.
Tickets range from $75 to $165 and include admission to all conference events and a three-hour workshop with one of the featured writers. Additional workshops can be purchased, depending on availability.
